Moving the goalposts?

I now find myself an "MV Novice" instead of an "MV Newbie" (and looking around I see others in the same category).
 
Has Steve moved the goalposts, making the coveted Junior MV badge more difficult to achieve? Or has he just changed the category names? I think we should etc., etc.  (I typed "etc., etc." just then to save myself typing the full sentence which was " I think we should be told")*
 
Reminds me of Catch-22 where they kept raising the number of missions whenever you got anywhere near the target  Wink
 
Cheers

Here at MV we have a policy of continuous improvement, especially during this initial test phase  Smiley

I've just registered this afternoon and read almost all the messages (except the very very technical), and I am rather dismayed that Pete is classed as a Novice. Surely he gets immediate brigadier-general status, or why are we all here?

You're right, so I've given him a personal upgrade.

Aah but looking at Pete's profile page reveals that the host machine still really considers him an MV newbie!
